No unread posts States/Govermental Immunity From FCRA Claims?

This Folder looks at issues of whether and how you can bring FCRA cases against Governmental Bodies or Agents/Employees who may violate the FCRA. Many such agencies and agents access credit files secretly while others report/furnish data to the credit reporting agencies. Does the 11th Amendment [Sovereign Immunity] prevent such suits? Do other immunity statutes prevent such suits?
